Chelsea manager Sarri confirms Hazard or Pedro to miss PAOK clash

Maurizio Sarri has confirmed either Eden Hazard or Pedro will be rested for Thursday's Europa League clash against PAOK Thessaloniki.

The Blues will travel to Greece for their opening fixture in Europe's second tier competition.

"Hazard or Pedro will rest on Thursday," Sarri said. "[Ruben] Loftus-Cheek has a little problem with the right tibia. You saw today he wasn't able to play, but I hope he can recover in the next two or three days.

"Maybe it's an opportunity I can give him a chance. I don't know now because I want to have a very clear the picture of the situation, who are the players that need to rest or not."
